Default New to BB. How do I setup my contacts?

Please Login to Remove!

I just got my first BB today (a 8330). I installed the desktop software and got it connected. I thought I would be able to enter contacts using this software and then have them appear on the BB. But I didn't see that anywhere. Do I have to enter the contacts using the device itself?

I've heard a lot about BB syncing - I assume thats with Outlook, I don't use Outlook (I hate it actually). Is that my only option?

-Thanks

I use outlook. In the bb desktop app you have to set up the synch settings. All of my contacts and calendar entried are updated.

not the easiest to set-up but it works so well it's worth it... get gmail and use contacts and calendar online...sync to BB via GooSync and Syncje. Wireless semi-auto... you will have some glitches as you set it up and it syncs for the first day or so and then it's just super.. gmail's servers make the email on a BB like instant messaging....

I found what I was looking for, its something called ABC, ABC Amber BlackBerry Editor.

You backup your blackberry, then you can use this software to edit the contacts in the backup file. Then you restore it. Perfect! It doesn't look like it supports groups, so I still have to do that on the device itself, but this makes adding all the contacts a lot easier.

Free download ABC Amber BlackBerry Editor, edit contacts in IPD files
